An island country in the Southeastern Caribbean Sea, Grenada is located near Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela and St Vincent and the Grenadines. After the US invasion and overthrow of the previous hardline Marxist government in 1983, Grenada has operated as a parliamentary democracy with a prime minister who acts as head of government and a Governor General who represents the British monarch as head of state. Progress on human rights issues was set back by the devastation of the hurricanes in 2004 and 2005, delaying implementation of necessary laws and measures. Though the State passed a law abolishing sentences of life imprisonment and flogging for children, the Act is yet to enter into force.
